“When my oldest son was seven, we were planning a trip to Disneyland. I headed to the kids’ section of the old Lafayette library to get him a guidebook for kids about the park and was so surprised to find out that they didn’t have any! Not only that but, when I looked into it further, I couldn’t find any at all. Sure, there were guidebooks about how to go to Disneyland WITH kids but nothing FOR kids. Being an illustrator, graphic designer, writer and Disney devotee, I knew I had my next project. After the wonderful response from my first book I couldn’t wait to get to work on more Going To Guides. Now there are three covering Disneyland, Disney California Adventure and Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.
